Hello, I can certainly sympathise with your situation. Airlines are not really interested in understanding an individual's problem. Seat capacity rules supreme. However, there are a small number of reputable Travel Agents who will 'go the extra mile' to find flights which do not discriminate against minority clients. Do please study review sites carefully and be bold when contacting them for quotations. Hope this helps? Brian

I am also a diabetic but am not quite following why this is affecting your flight plans? She can get diabetic meals on the flight and can take her insulin injections on the plane so it should not be a problem in that regard.

The question is not clear. If the Canadian airport transit route is all airside and does not involve customs/immigration a visa should not be required. If the flight has to be cancelled there should be a refund of the fare unless "no refund" was the condition of booking a cheap fare (buyer beware). A direct flight will usually cost more. Ask Dial-a-Flight if you booked through them they should be able and willing to answer these questions.
